Dear BGJHS Parents and Guardians:
It's hard to believe a new school year is upon us! We are excited to welcome our new 6th graders as well as our returning students. It's going to be a great school year! This email has back to school information that will hopefully answer many of your questions. If you need clarification on anything, feel free to call the front office at 270-746-2290 between the hours of 9am-2pm.
Open House/Schedule Pick-Up is Thursday, August 3rd from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Gym.
First Day of School is August 9th. School hours are 7:35 a.m.-2:35 p.m.
DUE TO AN UPGRADE TO THE SYSTEM, THE INFINITE CAMPUS MOBILE APP MUST BE UNINSTALLED AND REINSTALLED FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR.
In the morning all car riders should be dropped off in the back of the school in the car rider line. The doors open at 7:00 a.m. We have over 950 students so the earlier you drop off your student, the less likely you will be caught waiting very long in the car rider line. Students who are dropped off in the front of the school will be asked to walk around to the auditorium doors in the back to enter the school.
In the afternoon all car riders should be picked up in the back of the school in the car rider line as well. Car riders are dismissed at 2:40 p.m. after the buses have loaded. THE BUS LOOP IS CLOSED DURING DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP TIMES.
If your student will be a bus rider, we strongly encourage you to check the district website before the first day of school to determine your child's bus route number as well as pick-up time/location and drop-off time/location. BUS ROUTES CAN BE FOUND HERE.
Late breaking news and announcements are broadcast on our Twitter account. Follow us on Twitter @BGJHS.
Most back to school paperwork is now online and available for you to complete before school starts. Just log in to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account to complete this year's registration paperwork. 6TH GRADE PARENTS AND NEW STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE THEIR IC PARENT PORTAL INFORMATION EITHER AT OPEN HOUSE ON AUGUST 3RD OR THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.
The dress code can be found online by clicking HERE.
